Helene Schjerfbeck: A collection of 130 paintings (HD) Description: "The Finnish artist Helene Schjerfbeck (1862-1946) painted mainly works depicting herself, other women, children, & the home. Born in Helsinki, she began her training at the Finnish Fine Art Association's Drawing School as a precocious 11-year-old. Periods of study in Paris during the 1880s gave her the chance to see the works of Pierre Puvis de Chavannes (1824-1898), Edouard Manet (1832-1883), Paul Cézanne (1839-1906), Berthe Morisot (1841-1895), & Jules Bastien-Lepage (1848-1884). During the decade, she also traveled to Florence, St Petersburg, Vienna, & Great Britain. At the Paris Exhibition of 1889, the 27-year old artist was awarded a bronze medal for her painting ‘Le Convalescent’, which shows Impressionist influence. A Finnish grant had first allowed her to travel to Paris in 1880. There she studied with Léon Bonnat & Jean-Léon Gérôme at Madame Trélat de Vigny's painting studio for ladies. In 1881, she went to the private Académie Colarossi, where she was taught by Raphael Colin (1850-1916) & Gustave Courtois (1852-1924), who called her "une de mes meilleures élèves" in a letter of recommendation characterizing her as "très laborieuse" & as one of the most talented students, "certainement une des mieux douées." Until 1890, she returned frequently to Paris; & in 1884, she had her own studio there, which she longed for again as she aged. Between 1881 & 1884, she journeyed to Pont-Aven & Concarneau in Brittany with fellow female painters Marianne Preindelsberger (1855-1927) & Maria Wiik (1853-1928). Pont-Aven had attracted artists as early as the 1860s. The 3 Finnish women artists were there before Paul Gauguin (1848-1903), who arrived in Brittany in July 1886. It became a trendy venue for plein air painters from the late 1880s through early 1890s. In Brittany, Schjerfbeck met an English artist, to whom she was briefly engaged. But when the relationship ended, she traveled to St. Ives in Cornwall. In the 1890s she simplified her style, eliminating background detail and reducing her palette. These stylistic changes are seen in many of the portraits she painted of herself, her mother, and others.Schjerfbeck’s work shows a highly individual development, transforming gradually from melancholy, late 19th-century academic Realism to her own very personal style tending towards abstract Expressionism displaying perfectly balanced colors. From about 1902 her delicate health began to deteriorate (although she lived into her 80s); and she adopted a solitary life living with her mother at Hyvinkaa, almost forgotten, developing a much more simplified style. During this early period alone, her work was dominated by domestic scenes, featuring women and children engaged in reading or embroidery. As details gradually disappeared from her paintings, they gained increasing depth, approaching an abstract technique which was far ahead of her time. After this interval of semi-obscurity, Schjerfbeck made a second breakthrough in 1917 with her first solo exhibition, mounted by the art dealer Gösta Stenman in Helsinki. Besides early works, it included recent paintings which, like works of earlier artists such as Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin, were apparently inspired by Japanese masters. After her work was exhibited in 1937, she was recognized as one of the pioneers of modernism in Finland." --- SUBSCRIBE: www.youtube.com/c/LearnFromMasters?sub_confirmation=1 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LearnFromMasters/ Google+: https://plus.google.com/+LearnFromMasters Contact: LearnFromMasters01@gmail.com --- Thanks for all support!

Julian Alden Weir: A collection of 158 paintings (HD) Description: "Although best known today as an American Impressionist, Julian Alden Weir had a long and varied career. He received his earliest artistic education from his father Robert Weir (1803-1889) who was a professor of drawing at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point for forty-four years. Young Weir was born there on 30 August 1852. Weir's elder brother, John Ferguson Weir (1841-1926), was also an artist and served as Dean of the School of Fine Arts at Yale University. As a young man Julian studied at the National Academy of Design for three years. In 1873 he traveled to France where he entered the Ecole des Beaux Arts and worked under Jean-Leon Gerome (1824-1904). It was about this time, partly in gratitude to Mrs. Bradford Alden, the family friend who sponsored his trip, that the artist began to use only his first initial rather than his given name Julian. Through his European travels, particularly to Holland and Spain, Weir was able to study the paintings of Frans Hals and Diego Velasquez. Among French painters, one who had one of the strongest influences on the artist was the naturalist Jules Bastien-Lepage (1848-1884), who became a close friend of the American. Given Weir's inclination toward the accepted masters and his essentially conservative training, it is not surprising that he reacted negatively upon his first viewing of French avant-garde painting at the Impressionist exhibition of 1877. That year Weir returned to the United States. Settling in New York, he became a member of the newly established Society of American Artists, but continued to exhibit at the National Academy of Design. Teaching, portrait commissions, and still-life subjects provided his income. He maintained his ties in Europe, making several trips there and exhibiting at the Paris Salons of 1881, 1882, and 1883. In the spring of 1883 he married Anna Dwight Baker and the couple honeymooned in Europe until September. Upon their return they divided their time between New York City and two Connecticut towns, Branchville, where Weir had recently acquired a 150 acre farm, and Windham, home of Anna Weir's parents. At Branchville, Weir was host to numbers of artists, among them his closest friend John Twachtman, as well as Childe Hassam (1859-1935), Theodore Robinson, and Albert Pinkham Ryder. In the late 1880s Weir developed an interest in pastels and etchings, often working alongside Twachtman and reflecting that artist's lightness of touch. Weir, whose work had become increasingly daring after his initial stay in Europe, absorbed many aspects of Impressionism from his American colleagues and eventually exhibited with that group of them known as The Ten. When he had his first important one-man show in 1891, Weir was described by one critic as "the first among American to use Impressionistic methods and licenses successfully." Two years later, when he and Twachtman held their joint exhibition at the American Art Association, their works were shown adjacent to and compared with those of French Impressionists, Claude Monet and Paul Besnard. Weir's style, however, would vacillate greatly throughout the years and his underlying training in figure drawing, which helped to establish his reputation with celebrated paintings such as Idle Hours (1888, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York), often reasserted itself in his later works. By 1900 Weir was widely known and respected. That year he won a bronze medal at the Exposition Universelle in Paris. Four years later he won medals for both painting and engraving at the Saint Louis exposition. A retrospective exhibition of his work circulated to Boston, New York, Buffalo, and Cincinnati in 1911-1912 and he was elected president of the National Academy of Design in 1915. Weir died 8 December 1919 in New York City.

Daniel Garber: A collection of 84 paintings (HD)
Description: "Indiana born Daniel Garber's beautiful landscapes may be considered the most distinctive work of the Pennsylvania Impressionists at the turn of the century. Garber was born on April 11, 1880, in Manchester, Indiana, and his pursuit of a career as a professional artist began at age 16. From 1897 to 1898, he studied at the Art Academy of Cincinnati.
He moved to Philadelphia in 1897 and enrolled at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1899, and during the summers of 1899 and 1900 also took classes in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, at the Darby School of Painting, studying under Hugh Breckenridge and Thomas Anshutz. He opened a studio in Philadelphia in 1901, working as a portraitist and commercial artist. In 1905, he won a Pennsylvania Academy award, The Cresson Traveling Scholarship, which allowed him to go to Italy, England and France for two years.
As a result, the works of the French Impressionists, particularly those of Camille Pissarro and Claude Monet, inspired him. The European masters lent their influence, and he developed a signature style representing sunlight using a broad spectrum of pastel and bright colors, combining fantasy and realism. He returned to Lumberville, Pennsylvania, in 1907, and his mature works done in that area are perhaps some of his best.
He painted in a straightforward, luminous manner, depicting the great quarries across the river in Byram, New Jersey, as well as in a more decorative, high-key mode, rendering foliage and branch patterns, as in Wilderness (1912, oil on canvas). This painting includes an element of fantasy that had begun to characterize much of the late Impressionist work in America. During the period 1908 and 1924, Garber included skillfully painted figures in most of his paintings, unlike many of his contemporaries. To a smaller extent Garber was a portraitist, but his landscapes of the woods and quarries of Bucks County, Pennsylvania gained him his greatest notoriety.
His talents as a teacher were also evident, and he became the outstanding teacher among the group living at New Hope. He was a member of the faculty at the Philadelphia School of Design for Women in 1904, and then began in 1909 began a career of teaching at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts that lasted forty-one years. Not far from the Delaware River in Lumberville, Bucks County, Garber settled on a tranquil farm in 1907, and that provided him the inspiration for many of his works. Retiring in 1950, Garber was one of the Academy's most admired and respected teachers.
Garber's paintings are represented in the collections of many museums across the United States, including the Allentown Art Museum, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The nearly thirty awards that have been bestowed upon Garber are too numerous to list, however some include the National Academy of Designs Hallgarten Prize in 1909, and the 1924 Bronze Medal from the Carnegie Institute. Perhaps his most coveted was received in 1915, when he was awarded a Gold Medal from the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco. Daniel Garber died on his farm, Cuttalossa, on July 5, 1958."
